Please advise on Windows 7 64 bit usage/installation
« on: July 16, 2011, 11:47:31 pm »
For Code::Blocks(CB) to work under Win7 64 bit, is it good enough to use the CB + MinGW download, or should I use the CB only download?
If I use the CB only download, what compiler is recommended to produce 64 bit executables?
What should I do if I want to produce 32 bit executables under Win 7 64 bit?

Thank you for clarifying these issues,

SamQ

the CB with mingw works fine on Win7 64 :) (the 10.5 release not the older one)

if you want to develop for 64 bit then mingw64 is an option as a free alternative. 

TDM has a cross 32/64 bit mingw package you can use.

and i provide seperate 32/64 bit versions of gcc (not as neatly packed as the above though) but easier to use in the long end.

codeblocks runs with pretty much any compiler though :)
